All too often, lecturers give their presentations in class via office PowerPoint but nowadays, PPT in DVD format becomes the trend in some classrooms thanks to the rapid multimedia tool development. To be honest, I prefer DVD to pure PowerPoint as DVD can be more space-saving and more vivid and efficient for either teaching or sharing. Furthermore, when you burn your PPT to DVD, you can also add personalized logo, background music, or stylish menu for the output file, making your presentations more eye-catching and enjoyable.

burn PowerPoint to DVD with music.
